With the money involved for the town and the reputation of the event - would the organizser's not find a better system for the top end boats that are having the issues with the radar not reading.

Not only this weekend, not certain on this, but didn't David Scott and JT's 208 record run register in the neighbourhood of 213-214 on the Nautimarine's onboard GPS

NASCAR uses a transponder system so its not like technology has to be invented - transponder in the boat using GPS tracking transmitted wireless to a monitoring station.... that all said if you can make the run a few times and have the guns miss the boat altogether, I guess a boat can have an issue with a puck like transponder - like having it fall off the mount during a run and rolling backwards down the cockpit - 210+ going forwards and 6 backwards at the same time

Watching the awards on-line this afternoon, Bill T. said he wasn't in the boat today. His throttle man and John Arruda hammered her.

Yesterday, Bill T. was in the boat.

Congrats on the awesome speed runs and not giving up.

Please note: John ARRUDA was NOT in the My Way Boat. John Cosker was in the cockpit with Bill Tomlinson's throttleman on all runs today.

Only 2 guys named John have hit the 200+ mph mark at LOTO and Arruda is not one of them.

Huge congrats to Bill Tomlinson

I never heard the commentater's, including Teague, mention Cosker's name 1 time in the My Way 50. They Kept saying Bill Tomlinson over and over, almost like he was in the boat alone.... Very Strange, but I feel they should have given some more recognition to John Cosker too... Seemed like everytime they made a run it was 208, it was so frustrating, becuz the radar guns
were letting them and their crew down..

Great Job To My Way !!!
Great looking boat too..!
